Submission + - Interstellar hydrogen prevents light-speed travel? (theregister.co.uk) 1

garg0yle writes: As if relativity wasn't enough to prevent us travelling at light speed, Professor William Edelstein of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is now claiming that the interstellar hydrogen, compressed in front of the ship, would bring the journey to a shocking end. From the article, 'As the spaceship reached 99.999998 per cent of the speed of light, "hydrogen atoms would seem to reach a staggering 7 teraelectron volts", which for the crew "would be like standing in front of the Large Hadron Collider beam".'
